Fact: Paige can be the cornerstone of the new, improved Divas’ division

April 8, 2014

I talk about this a lot, but after last night’s RAW it seems that it’s finally coming true – Sara Del Rey’s fierce dojo stable is preparing to take over WWE and give us the Divas’ division we should have had all along.paige is champion Read the rest of this entry »

Question: is this a changing of the guard in WWE?

April 8, 2014

After Wrestlemania, there was talk about how this was a new generation of WWE talent taking over. Undertaker lost his streak; the New Age Outlaws and Kane were squashed by the Shield; and Daniel Bryan defeated the Authority to become the face of the company.

And last night’s RAW seems to consolidate that view.

There were vignettes for Adam Rose and Bo Dallas; Emma and Summer Rae featured in another mixed tag and got big cheers; Cesaro is the new Paul Heyman guy; Lana introduced the Bulgarian Brute Alexander Rusev, who dispatched Zack Ryder; and perhaps most amazingly (but wonderfully) Paige won the Divas title on her debut, pinning AJ Lee.

At the end, as the stable formerly known as Evolution retreated in the face of Bryan and the Shield’s dominance, they looked old…old and tired…and the once-invincible bullies were helpless.

I am excited for what’s coming up on WWE. I hope this fantastic and sparkling promise for the next 12 months comes to fruition.

On Summer Rae, Christy Hemme and the Blossom Twins

June 10, 2013

I was going to start this blog with an apology for returning to a subject I’ve highlighted many times before.

But then I decided not to. I make no apology for highlighting appalling behaviour where it occurs, and it’s occurring far too much in professional wrestling at the moment.

I could perhaps overlook the slightly sinister leering of WWE’s announce team, who have a particular Summer Rae fixation at the moment. She’s a gorgeous girl, and goodness knows, I’m not in any position to tell people that they shouldn’t comment on the attractiveness of wrestlers. However, when that’s all you have to say about someone, and you’re saying it twice a week on international TV, and you’re old enough to be her father, and you’re veering into the territory of telling her to take her clothes off, then it gets rather uncomfortable.
